New! Waffle Sandwiches at Magic Kingdom’s Sleepy Hollow

You heard me right! Waffle sandwiches!!!

But before we go off on a tangent, let’s start at the beginning…

Sleepy Hollow, the small counter-service location in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Liberty Square, has long offered some of our favorite snacks, including the large Mickey-shaped waffles (one of the last places you could get these!), and the filling and delicious chicken and wild rice soup.

We’ve heard through the grapevine (Thanks, Laurie!) that the menu has changed significantly and asked one of our colleagues, Brooke Fehr from DisZine.com, to investigate during her recent WDW visit!

New Waffle Sandwiches

The new menu at Sleepy Hollow has introduced what we think will be a new Disney food classic — waffle sandwiches. And these are true waffle sandwiches — as in a giant waffle with stuff crammed into it, then folded over!

There are three new offerings: A sweet and spicy chicken waffle and a ham, prosciutto, and Swiss cheese waffle, both for $6.99; and a Nutella and fresh fruit waffle for $5.59. None of these are currently listed for a snack credit.

Here’s Brooke’s report:
“The waffles were huge. Both sandwiches were full-sized, round waffles, folded in half with the filling in the middle. Think ‘waffle taco.’ While neither sandwich came with any sides, they were more than enough food for a heavy snack or meal. They were served in those tiny baskets, so they were a bit top heavy and awkward since the sandwiches were much larger than the baskets.

These were your typical WDW breakfast waffle — malty, slightly sweet, and freshly made. No leftover waffles here. In fact, both sandwiches, not just the waffles, were freshly made.

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich
East meets West in this twist on the fried chicken and waffles classic. This waffle incorporates a large, batter-fried chicken breast, doused in a sweet and spicy Asian sauce, and topped with creamy coleslaw and fresh arugula.

The sauce had some warmth; the pepper lingered in my mouth, but it wasn’t unpleasant. I didn’t have a drink, and eating the sandwich didn’t cause me to run for one. I’d rate the spice factor as mild to medium.

This sandwich, like the ham, prosciutto, and Swiss version, is only available from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich
Again, huge. The full-sized waffle is pulled off of the iron and slathered generously with Nutella, a chocolate-hazelnut spread. It’s then topped with a large serving of fruit — in my case, banana slices, strawberry slices, and blueberries.

The fruit is fresh (although the strawberries did seem to be in a very light syrup), and there was easily more than a cup of fruit on the sandwich. Again, delicious, and perfect for breakfast for one hungry person. Enough for a couple of people to share as a snack. This one is available all day.”

Other Menu Changes

We’re sorry to report that some of our favorites have now been taken off of the menu to make way for the waffle sandwiches. The chicken and wild rice soup and the large Mickey-head waffles can no longer be purchased here at Sleepy Hollow. :-(

I’m happy that they’ve kept the ice cream cookie sandwiches on the menu!! I’d be very sad to see those go…

  2. Sara says:

    Those look awesome!

  3. marcellina says:

    I’ve never had chicken and waffles before but have been curious to try it.. what better place than WDW? I think I’d have to try all three though cause the ham, prosciutto, and swiss sounds amazing and anything with Nutella is a must do! I’m so excited to try this in February!

  4. Michelle Johnson says:

    The chicken one looks amazingly delicious!

  5. AFoodie says:

    Chicken & waffles at WDW — go figure!!! I like that they took an Asian spin with it. I would LOVE to taste all three of these!

  6. Kat says:

    So sad to hear the Mickey-head waffles are gone, but this sounds amazing! Plan on trying the sweet and spicy chicken waffle when I go in December.

  7. Oh my, that nutella and fruit one looks like heaven! Yum!

  8. Anastasia says:

    The Mickey waffles are gone? So the sandwiches use just round waffles? That’s too bad. I’d love a Mickey waffle sandwich…. :(

  9. Becca says:

    Too many good choices at this place! I’ll just have to go again, and again, and again…

  10. Diana says:

    Whoa. I’m going to have to get myself one of those waffle sandwiches….maybe both!

  11. Howard says:

    Didn’t they also carry Caramel or Kettle Corn too? I remember introducing my Brazilian roommate to the amazing stuff at Sleepy Hollow. Can you find them anywhere anymore?

  12. melissa sue says:

    marcellina: if you want to do chicken and waffles at WDW, head over to Ft. Wilderness for lunch at Trail’s End. They do chicken and waffles RIGHT!!

  13. AJ says:

    Howard — No more caramel corn for a while now :-(

    Marcelling and Melissa — Agreed! Love the Trail’s End chicken and waffles!! You can see a pic in our recent Trail’s End review.

  14. Evan says:

    Had the chicken one for lunch yesterday. It was pretty good and was very filling…the photos here don’t lie about the size. That being said, I would have liked the chicken as just a sandwich because the waffle put it over the top for me. Was good to try, but I don’t know if I would get it again just because of how much stuff there is going on (look at me saying something at Disney was too much).

  15. Savorique says:

    Up until now, I liked my waffle with plain hazelnut paste but I’m very tempted to try this one with fruits.

  16. marcellina says:

    Evan.. I was thinking that too. A waffle can be so filling on it’s own not to mention a big hunk of chicken in there as well AND coleslaw… maybe I’d get this just to sample it and share it with someone. Thanks Melissa Sue and AJ about the Trail’s End tip.. I’ll have to check it out! ;)

  17. Oh boy!! They look too good to be true!! I hope they’re popular and stay on the menu until next October ;)

  18. laurie bishop says:

    oh goodness – will have to have the ham one in december

  19. anderson says:

    These look super amazing…and it looks reasonably priced too.

    We need these on the west coast, now!

  20. canadianslovewdw says:

    WOW.. i hope they still have those next time i go to WDW… i want the chicken one…

  21. Erin Foster says:

    If they’d pop a scoop of ice cream on that fruit/Nutella one, that would be something special.

  22. Eric says:

    At $6.99 That’s a relative bargan. At Disneyland, I’m sure they would be priced at least a couple of dollars more.

  23. kathleena says:

    The fruit and nutella one sounds great, but I’m still stuck in the past and miss the warm apple cobbler with ice cream! Loved getting one of those before a parade!

  24. Kevin Yee says:

    The sweet and spicy chicken was AMAZING. Not only will I get it again, I’ll get it the next time I set foot in that park.

  25. Heather says:

    Of course the Mickey large waffle is gone just as I planned to get it next month for breakfast! I may try the fruit waffle sandwich instead, though! Maybe it’s just me, but the other sandwiches seem a bit disgusting.

  26. Drew says:

    Looks like someone got wind of the hugely successful new restaurant concept in SoCal called Bruxie – http://www.bruxie.com – and their waffle sandwiches are divine! Why did WDW have to wait till 2 weeks after my trip to bring these babies out? I am continually impressed by Foods at WDW and how they trounce all over DLR’s comparatively pathetic restaurant operations. You’d think DLR would be the ones to be adventurous. Kudos to WDW for bringing in a great new concept.

  27. Emma says:

    Oh… Em… Gee… I’m a Cast Member and it’s my day off tomorrow. A fruit and Nutella waffle sandwich is CLEARLY in my future! AND I HAVE A DISNEY GIFT CARD. It’s fate!

  28. Howard says:

    AJ— Thanks for the heads up. I guess it’s been a very long time since I was last there.

  29. jill says:

    I love a waffle, but that chicken rice soup was real good! Last trip my husband and I split a soup and a baked potato for a great lunch and only 2 snack credits! And a bonus we ate it in The Columbia Harbor House! I’m going to miss you soup! … but Nutella is yummy!

  30. Pudge the Fish says:

    I’m happy to see that Disney resisted the urge to add Craisins to the Nutella and Fruit Waffle-wich. As a non-fan of raisin/craisins I’m don’t care for that corporate partnership too much. :)

  31. Canada68 says:

    Hmmm…neither of those sandwiches sounds appealing to me….why couldn’t they leave the Mickey waffles on the menu as well? I mean, it is the Magic Kingdom! I think the plain Mickey waffle was more kid friendly, too. Waffle ‘sandwiches’ sound like a fad to me….bring back my Mickey Head waffle please !!!

  32. Melissa Sue (above) shared this link with me yesterday and I am STILL thinking about that fried chicken waffle sandwich! Only 100 more days…sigh….

  33. TraciLynn2005 says:

    Oh, no– Ipromised my son a Mickey Waffle for our Jan Trip here. He is going to e so disappointed! He is a Mickey waffle freak but the rest of the family are not breakfast people. :(

  34. Geena says:

    Yummm… I can’t wait to try one (or two) in Febuary!!!!!!!!

  35. catherine says:

    Love the chicken sandwich. The review doesn’t say anything about mayonnaise but I would like to know if there is mayonnaise or any flavor of mayonnaise. I hate mayonnaise.

  36. Watch Me Eat says:

    I don’t know how I didn’t know about waffle sandwiches until a few months ago. I recently was introduced to them through a local food truck and I’m a now a fan. Those particular waffle sandwiches do look especially amazing!

  37. Chicken in a Waffle? I did not even know this was a possibility but looking at one right now it has leapt to the top of my ‘to eat’ list for next June/July. It’s the snack food options and counter services rather than the sit down meals that excite me the most, so this looks oh so enticing. I really should not read the DFB at midnight

  38. Jenn says:

    Thanks for the tip on these sandwiches! Tried the chicken waffle and the nutella waffle this weekend. Both were great but the nutella waffle was AMAZING. They even asked us how we knew about them because they are brand new. :)

  39. AJ says:

    Jenn — thanks for the review! I can’t wait to try them this week!

  40. Samantha says:

    Had the ham, prosciutto, and swiss waffle sandwich and it is amazing. It was defiantly big enough for two people to share, but does anyone know the sauce they put on it or what is in it?

  41. Cynthia says:

    Tried all three waffle sandwiches on the 27th of Dec, they were great. The three sandwiches were made fresh while I waited in line. The three sandwiches were shared between four people and we had trouble finishing. We were stuffed! Can’t wait to have another in April!

  42. AJ says:

    Samantha and Cynthia — Thank you for the reviews!! I can’t wait to head back to Sleepy Hollow!

  43. Allaina says:

    Must try on this fall.

  44. WDWCanFan says:

    This would be really nice if this could be used as a counter service meal option!
    A waffle sandwich + drink + dessert! Fabulous!
    Is it? Can it? Will it?

  45. WDWCanFan says:

    –> “SNACKS ONLY” is how it is apparently/currently listed.
    I hope that it can change!

  46. Joy says:

    Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of trying the chicken and waffle sandwich. Surprisingly my unadventurous husband spotted it on the menu and decided to give it a try. This sandwich is heavenly. It’s a fairly large sandwich so we shared. It is also a good value. We absolutely loved it and we can’t stop talking about it. I would like to see more food like this on the menu.

  47. Amanda says:

    We were there a couple weeks ago and read about the waffle sandwiches and had to try them. They were sooo good! The Chicken & Waffle sandwich was awesome – it had a Thai spin to it with a kick of heat! Of course we had to try they Nutella and Fruit one as well…amazing! My parents had the Ham & Prosciutto one and loved it as well! Best part about it, kept us full all day and they were only $7! Can’t wait to go back and eat there again – highly recommend to anyone going to the Magic Kingdom!!

  48. Carla says:

    We just went to WDW a couple of weeks ago, and our favorite dish out of the entire trip were the Chicken Wafflesandwiches! Absolutely amazing! If anyone has a recipe close to this, we would LOVE to have it.

    Please… with sugar on top?

  49. Kevin says:

    I’m commenting 2.5 years late, but I just had the chicken waffle sandwich for the first time and absolutely loved it! That was my favorite CS dish of the trip.
